Lightweight hammock to use as a chair and gear sling
I wanted to try my hand at making a hammock and I saw this hammock chair somewhere while browsing the interwebs. It's pretty versatile. You can use it for the following:
- Chair - set on side of the tree strap higher than the other side so you kind of lounge in it.
- Gear sling - set it up on your guyline for tarp or bug net and throw all your gear in for easy access (or if you don't want it to be on the ground).
- Kid hammock - very small child. I think my 4 year old nephew would be able to sleep in this but my short 7 year old nephew might be uncomfortable.
The one I found online said you could use it as a pack cover, but I didn't used waterproof material. It also said you could use it to be visible in high hunting areas if you use bright colored material and cover your pack with it. It makes sense but I'm not sure how you would cover your pack with the one I created.
